It's been quiet around here lately huh? Well it's for good reason.
I've had a lot going on lately because I started my new desk job until I can make enough green through personal training. So far I like it a lot and it's only part time so I have time before 8 am and after 2:30 pm to do as I please and it's database work so not the kind of stuff you bring home with you.
So what have I been doing with my time away from blogging? Besides running. Setting up my new online personal training business! What! What on earth is online personal training? Don't trainers have to squat next to you and scream at you and drink your tears? No, we actually don't. There are a few reasons I chose to go the online route right now and a few key benefits I like to point out to people. First, it saves me a lot of time and time is money. By not driving all over creation to train people at different locations or paying gym use rental fees and additional insurance premiums I save myself a lot of headaches. Especially since I hate to drive. Another benefit for me is that I get to work for myself which has always been a goal of mine growing up. It's not a power thing because I don't want employees but it's more of a flexibility thing. I get to decide when I do things and that makes fitting in long runs (and other workouts) a lot easier. I also don't have quite the strain on my body that I would have with more hands on training.
But enough about me, let's talk about YOU! What are the benefits to online personal training? The biggest is cost. Working online allows me to charge lower rates because (as mentioned earlier) I'm incurring a lot less cost myself. I'm saving money and I'm passing the savings on to youuuu! Does anyone else remember that Family Guy episode?
In all seriousness though, personal trainers can be really expensive and that's always been the biggest obstacle I've heard from people for why they don't have one. My goal is to try to change that and make it more affordable and more reasonable. You can workout anywhere you'd like. If you have access to a gym, great! The Trainerize app makes it really easy to pull up your scheduled workout and perform it in a gym or at home or even in hotel rooms. You tell me what you want and I do my best to make that happen.
I could talk about this all day but it's still a work in progress. Feel free to go to the site if you'd like (keep in mind it's still under construction...tips welcome!) and on the top right click the green button to Become a Client! Just make sure you DO NOT PAY yet. You can also just click the Contact Me button to send me a message if you have more specific questions.
I will hopefully be up and training on September 1st and have a special gift for anyone who signs up before then and even more special if you happen to be one of my dozen loyal readers! Hope everyone has a great weekend! Here's a video of week 6 of marathon training so far for your viewing pleasure.
